Let x be the variable. If the first step is to add 4 on each side, then the variable term must have −4 so we have:
$x-4>6$
For this to be a two-step inequality, there must be another operation needed to isolate x after adding 4 to both sides. So, we can multiply x by a number of your choice, for example:
$2x-4>6$
This is now a two-step inequality where you first add 4 to both sides then divide both sides by 2 to solve for x.
